The exercise session
The warm up:
Split into 3 phases
1.pulse raising 2.stretching 3.specific skill related practice
The main activity
The cool down:
Split into 3 phases
1.pulse dropper 2. stretching ( disperses lactic acid) 3.relaxation
Anaerobic or aaerobic?
Anaerobic---> Respiring with no oxygen , or very little this occurs in short bursts of exercise.The heart cannot supply the muscles wth sufficient oxygen or blood that the cells require, lactic acid builds up.
Aerobic --->respiration with oxygen, the heart can supply the muscles with blood and oxygen as fasts as the cells need it. This is used in steady moderated exercise.
Endomorph- short figure with narrow shoulders and broad hips, pear shaped with a low centre of gravity.They carry lots of extra fat so are not very mobile.
Ectomorph- Low body weight , tall and thin and have a high centre of gravity, good at endurance activities. Narrow hips and shoulders with low body fat.
Mesomorph- Broad shoulders and narrow hips, lots of muscle, good at activities that require strength and power
Factors affecting optimum weight
Gender- typically males have a higher optimum weight than females because they have a higher ratio of muscle
Height- If a person is tall they are more likely to weigh more than a short person
Bone structure-A person with a small frame is typically lighter than a person with a large frame because bone is heavy
Muscle girth- People with a higher muscle ratio will weigh more because muscle is very heavy.

Vitamins- (found in:dairy products, begtables, meat , cereals, nuts , fruit and vegtable oil) help vision , skin , bones , teeth and healing capability (immune system)
calcium: Vital for formation of bones and teeth, helps bones become stronger, helps increase density of bone; which decreases with age
Iron:Involved in the formation of red blood cells and improves the holding cpability of haemoglobin and oxygen of the blood.
water:Holds oxygen helps osimosis on the body , helps flush toxins from the body , keeps the body hydrated , prevents cells becoming flaccid- keeps them turgid.
Fibre-Prevents constipation, reduces blood cholesteral levels
